Getting into the spirit of Halloween shouldn't be too hard this week Â the forecast calls for murky, cold weather for the Lawrence area.
"There may be a mist of light rain today, tonight and tomorrow," said Matt Makens, 6News meteorologist.
You'll probably be wise taking along an umbrella Tuesday night, as rain will be likelier and a little bit heavier, Makens said.
"That heavier rain could carry over towards Wednesday morning. Then Wednesday afternoon we should start to dry off a bit," he said.
Afternoon temperatures Monday and Tuesday will be about 45, with the overnight lows dropping to 42.
Wednesday will be cool though, with a high of 40.
The clouds should part by Thursday, with a high during the day of 40. A waxing crescent moon and cold temperatures in the 30s will greet Halloween revelers Thursday night.
"Trick or treaters will have to bundle up . . . it will be a cold night," Makens said.
The temperatures will continue to slide as the weekend approaches.
"Friday and Saturday will start off in the mid-20s and end up at 42 on Friday and 48 on Saturday," Makens said.
Saturday's KU-KSU game will be cool and chilly, but at least somewhat sunny, he said.
On Sunday, the weather will warm up a little, with the highs getting into the 50s.
And the long-range forecast shows even warmer weather will make a brief comeback.
"Temperatures should get back into the 60s before the next rainmaker comes through in the middle of the week," Makens said.
